Fiorino Mud provides a GPS track to follow and a monitoring service for the participants via the web, as well as an SMS Alert service with geolocation. Participants are required to have the track previously provided on their devices.
Fiorino Mud is in total self-sufficiency. Fiorino Mud foresees the absence of a solution of continuity, or the lack of intermediate stages: the track provided must be fully covered, in one stage.
A means of transporting essential luggage is made available free of charge which the participant in the bike experience will want to pass from departure to arrival. For the return the PuntAla Camp & Resort, arrival of the Fiorino Mud, is about 14 km from the Follonica railway station, logistics deemed ideal for returning to the starting point (Florence) with a comfortable regional train.
Fiorino Mad is a bike experience in which a logistical coordination between two GPS points that are provided together with a track is offered. Fiorino Mud is not a cycling race, it is not a competition of any kind or a competitive test.
However the GPS monitoring service provided, still draws up a order to complete the bike experience which is based on the time taken , for the sole purpose of allowing those who want to test themselves, to test their skills, also by comparing them with previous editions.
The bike experience is not subject to federal rules and does not provide for the obligation to have a sports affiliation. However, it is necessary to respect the medical certification dictated below.
Under the complete rules:
3ADVICE ON THE BIKE
While there are no technical obligations in this regard, the following recommendations are provided:
Recommended tire 40 mm
We know that Tubeless tires offer greater protection from punctures and pinches, but the terrain to be tackled will tend to slide.
The recommended type of tessellation is an AllRoad that adapts well to all types of terrain and surfaces.
The choice of tread also depends on your level of preparation for driving.
The percentage of the offroad is about 70% with predominance of white roads but also earthy and heavy stretches.
Gravel bike is recommended but it is also possible to tackle the route with CX or MTB and also E-BIKES in the same category.
Recommended ratios for a MTB there are no problems of choice given the nature of the vehicle suitable for overcoming important slopes. We also remember that there are numerous fast sections on dirt roads and some important sections on asphalt and transfer.
Recommended ratios for Gravel and CX if with a single crown a 32 or 42 is recommended and a wide cassette, 10-36 or even more depending on the characteristics. If equipped with a triple on the front, the rear can also include a more regular cassette with a few jumps like a 28-11
BRAKES: we now know the widespread use of bicycles with disc brakes but of course the FiorinoMud can also be tackled very well with traditional brakes
Double lenses for glasses are recommended.
